|Summary:||Technology can help us learn more about people and cultures from the past...like ancient Egypt. This book describes the techniques and the reasons for the use of mummification in ancient Egypt.Just what is a mummy and where do mummies come from? At the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston we join LeVar to learn about mummies and see how the museum conserves these ancient artifacts. Then, with a closer look through CT scan technology, we discover what's underneath the mummy wrapping and, with the assistance of a forensic artist, what the mummy looked like three to four thousand years ago.The first activity, Dry as a Desert, deals with dry environments, evaporation, decomposition, tissue, and preservation.|
